The Surrey RCMP wrapped up a traffic campaign earlier this month, aimed at pedestrian safety in school zones, that resulted in several fines and one arrest.
The “Think of Me” campaign, a collaboration of the RCMP, Surrey School District, ICBC and the Surrey Crime Prevention Strategy took place Sept. 9 to 15, and resulted in 2,500 handmade warnings from students, 100 violation tickets and one arrest.
A 34-year-old Surrey woman was arrested after she failed to stop for police outside a Cloverdale Elementary School Sept. 9; she was later arrested and has been charged with two counts of driving while disqualified, two counts of driving while prohibited and one count of driving while suspended.
She was also issued fines for speeding in a school zone and failing to stop for police.
“While this campaign was a great opportunity for students and their schools to work with officers and volunteers to help build safer communities, it also helps us get dangerous drivers off the road,” Cpl. Scotty Schumann said in a release.
